Chocolate Stout Ice Cream Sandwiches

This is more of that inherent rebellion I told you about. I’ll take a stout any day, but am more drawn to them in the middle of August when everyone else is reaching for those session IPAs. Ice cream is fine, but when it’s freezing outside, it’s the most appealing. When the summer heat hits […]

Caramel Apple Beer Bread

  I love this bread in spite of how easy it is. Yes, in spite. In fact, I almost resent it for being so easy, I like a challenge. I like to work for it. I like beer pizza dough that takes 24 hours and I love that it takes all day for me to […]

Spinach Artichoke Beer Cheese Crostini

This is necessary. Putting dip on bread. Serving it on a silver platter. Acting fancy. It’s the same amalgamation of ingredients as that dip you serve in that Pyrex bowl surrounded by bread slices, relatively similar process, but the result is the ability to use the Italian word for “little toast” whilst talking about beer […]

Rosemary Beer Biscuits with Stout Sausage Gravy

Let’s pretend for a second that you’ve never had biscuits and gravy. Like you’ve never sat in good company at a crappy diner in a small town eating sub par biscuits and gravy washing it down with shitty coffee like it’s the best breakfast you’ve ever had.
